About Artist Tree Studio
Artist Tree Studio is a private art studio specializing in art classes for kids in Temple, TX. Join us to learn, explore, and create through acrylics, watercolors, pastels, tempera, markers, chalk, colored pencils, pen and ink, mixed media and much more! We will be learning all about the elements and principles of art using examples throughout art history to help us create our own masterpieces. There will be a fall and spring semester each lasting 16 weeks long. Classes will meet weekly at Artist Tree Studio (located in our home at 3807 Chisholm Trail, Temple, TX 76504). Students Kindergarten through 5th grade are welcome. Are you ready to get creative!?
Fall Semester Art Classes
In the fall Artist Tree Studio puts on an art show. We spend the semester creating art of a specific theme in various art mediums-- this year is “The Arts” (music, dance, poetry, etc). The kids will create about 10 projects based on the theme, which will be displayed at our art show (located at a rented art venue). Students are encouraged to invite parents, grandparents, friends, and family to come to the show!
Spring Semester Art Classes
In the spring Artist Tree Studio has two main objectives. We participate in an art contest (this year’s contest is TBD), and we create art for a permanent project to be installed somewhere in the community.
The art contest is a great opportunity for kids to spend a lot of time on one piece of art. We will spend about 2 months on this project, the first month brainstorming ideas and practicing in the selected medium (watercolor, pastel, etc) and the second month drawing and carefully creating the finished project. We use professional artist supplies for the contest, and students love to go big!
The community project is new this year. I hope to work with the city to come up with a project that the kids can make for the community. This might be a park bench or trash can wrap or some other playground decoration. The classes will all work together to creat one big image that can be produced professionally and installed in the community!
Storybook Art Camp: SUMMER FUN!
Summer at Artist Tree Studio is all about Storybook Art Camp!!! Kids come Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 1:30 p.m. to write and illustrate a real storybook. The stories are then printed into hardcover books that the students receive a week or two after camp! We also play art games, have play-dough contests, and enjoy the studio decorated with castles including tents to climb in and read a book (for inspiration!) The cost of camp is $250.
It has been an incredible blessing to have discovered this treasure of an artist and art class. Tiffany Rhodes is incredibly talented and puts her heart and soul into her students and program. She teaches many mediums and lets the students bring their vision to life thru their own creativity.
My daughter loved learning, gained skills that will be with her for a lifetime and truly enjoyed the experience. Tiffany brings her program full circle by hosting art shows, submitting the children’s artwork to local contests and hosts summer camps!! You will treasure the art that comes home and your child will flourish with all of the new skills.
Tiffany is an awesome teacher! Both my kids love attending the class and always had fun while learning! She is very attentive and engaging with kids and ever ready to help them! We love Tiffany!
Tiffany was a great art teacher for my children. My son and daughter enjoyed going to Artist Tree Studio so much they would ask me if it was Wednesday every day because Wednesday was the day my children used to go to Artist Tree Studio. My daughter tends to pursue perfection and sometimes she is slow in completing her work, but Tiffany always gave her enough time, support and encouragement to compete her work. Last year, we entered for the first time the Wellsfargo art contest. Tiffany spent many extra hours to guide her students. With her hard work and dedication, two students won 1st place in their group, and one of them was my daughter. Without Tiffany's guidance and help, my daughter could never have achieved such a wonderful award. I'm so sad that Tiffany can no longer teach my children as she moved to other city, but I want to recommend her as a great art teacher.
Tiffany is the best art teacher we have had the pleasure of teaching our kids. She concentrates on each child's individual strengths rather than clubbing them in one unit. We loved that our children got to explore so many different art forms in a short span of time. And she is so patient and kind. We miss Ms. Tiffany!
Our daughter was enrolled in Artist Tree Studio and she really enjoyed and loved the art lessons. She grew and absolutely enriched her creativity and art skills. Tiffany, the instructor and also the owner, was very professional and passionate in putting every efforts in improving each student. We really recommend it if you are looking for an excellent art teacher.
